Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a thriving liberal religious community of close to 150 members. We work and play together to meet our individual and group needs - be they spiritual, intellectual, or social. We welcome all who seek a religious home, free of creeds and based on love, reason, and conscience. We first met over 60 years ago as a small lay-led fellowship and have grown with the help of strong leadership - both lay and ministerial - to a dynamic fellowship serving Humboldt County and the Northern coast of California. We invite you to browse through our website to learn more about our Sunday services, our programs, social action activities, and religious education.

Upcoming Events at HUUF - September 2016
We currently hold two services, one at 9:00 a.m. and the other at 11:00 a.m. Childcare is provided at 9:00 a.m. and Religious Education and Nursery Care are provided at the 11:00 a.m. service.
Sunday, September 4 – 11 a.m. Honoring All Labor: It's Often More Radical Than We Think – Reverend Bryan Jessup. Around election time our politicians often pay lip service to labor but our economic system often works to pay as little as possible to working people. That system often pits workers against each other and devalues the nurturing and supportive work done by women, nursing assistants and more. Changing that system so that all labor is honored and compensated is an ongoing task.
Come one and all to celebrate returning from summer adventures and reflections. The gifts we bring from our times apart combine to enhance our beloved religious community that nurtures each one of us. Everyone is invited to bring real or virtual water to blend in our community bowl. Be prepared to briefly (one sentence) share the source of the water and what it symbolizes for you. Remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001 will be woven into the service.
An all-Fellowship potluck picnic on the patio will immediately follow the service. Bring a ready-to-serve dish to the kitchen prior to the service. Refrigerator space is available. The oven can be used to keep items warm during the service, but please do not plan to prepare or cook items in the kitchen.
Sunday, September 18 9 a.m & 11 a.m. Our Source and Our Values – Reverend Bryan Jessup. We live in an interconnected web of existence wherein collaboration and mutual cooperation leads to harmony and health. The deep values at the core of all great religious traditions call us to love the web of life, ourselves as part of it and our neighbors as ourselves. These deep, life-enhancing values are often scorned in our hyper-competitive world. Yet, in the end, human survival and the health of our planet depend on them.
Sunday, September 25 9 a.m. & 11 a.m. Autumn Equinox Celebration – Bonnie MacGregor. For 15,000 generations, human beings have been guided by the forces of nature to find our place in the cosmos. Each season’s turning not only impels us to respond to our physical needs but also draws us to new inner understandings. At the fall equinox the “world is in balance,” and we will gather to celebrate our harvests and to reflect on maintaining our balance in the dark and storms ahead.
